golden brown cookies with chocolate chips and coconut and a yummy pecan chocolate frosting

Top Review by jusme

I found this recipe in the Taste of Home Christmas Cookies and Candies book for 2009. I was unable to get the frosting to turn out; no matter how much I tempered the egg, it would still cook!! I ended up adding the about 1 cup coconut, all of the chocolate chips, and a handful of pecans to the dough itself and didn't use a frosting. It was still yummy!
